    Replenishment is really only useful if you're developing quite a bit more than that. For Xtol though, one would normally replenish one roll's worth from a 2L working solution after about 1-2 weeks of inactivity. But your process isn't going to be very well controlled with those big gaps being the norm rather than the exception.

    If large-volume tanks are causing you wastage (i.e. quantity required for coverage is much greater than quantity required for capacity) then you might want to look at using more-highly-diluted developers. Too bad if you wanted silver-solvent (grain-smoothing) effects though.

    Well I do batch runs, I have found that time is more a factor than usage with Ilfsol 3 I can EASILY reuse it to process 4 rolls adding about 30 seconds to each run if I'm doing it all in the same day. Even though its supposedly a one shot developer.

    I usually do about 10 rolls at a time. Once I hadn't processed for a while and discovered I not had enough extra developer to make a full new batch and I just guesstimated and used 2 MONTH old one shot developer that already had 5 rolls run through it, added about half the normal amount as "replenishment" and then halfway the 30 second increments and did 8 rolls with respectably usable results, I think I was at 15 minutes on the last one (this is a developer that is normally a 4 minute developer) so I'm open to replenishment as an option, but you're right I don't like diluting too much, so perhaps I'll just stick to spending money and getting good and more foreseeable results.

    BTW I am not normally so careless, but the shots weren't super important and I was curious if I could "DO IT" especially on a one shot developer.

    Or you could use rotary development, very little volume is required. Jobos are $$ but you can get cheap roller-bases and run whatever tanks on them.

    Drawback there is constant agitation of course, so shorter toe in general and reduced film speed in some devs.

    Actually I have used it for even lesser amounts and for longer time periods between and still got great results.

    There's already an aerial film group and a double-X (5222) group but it excludes the aero double-X. Plenty of other film-specific groups out there for sharing techniques/results, just not for 2405 yet.

    In other news, I now have a 70mm back attached to my RZ and have made a couple of 2405 tests by taping it into 4x5 holders & developing in a 3010. Now I just need one more cartridge to turn up in the post and I'll be able to actually shoot some properly.

    I would send you one but I only have 5.

    Go on ebay, spend $15 on one of the 15 foot rolls of Kodak Panatomic-X it comes WITH a roll PRE loaded with pan-x just shoot that first then re-use the roll.
